Lava you!

I recently stitched this up for my poppi(dad)! Maureen sketched it up for me in no time. I loved all of the french knots, they are so ridiculously addicting! It's my favorite when Maureen draws me patterns, it's instant gratification.
Hope you like:


When I went down to visit in San Diego, he had it hanging in his room. Precious! It made me really happy :)

I love stitching on black! It makes the colors pop so much more than on white. You can get the patterns on black by tracing it over using white or red transfer paper: http://www.dickblick.com/products/saral-wax-free-transfer-paper/?wmcp=google&wmcid=products&wmckw=12917-5012-899. Can't wait to see what you make!
